Morgon's Master In Fleurie: 2018 Foillard Fleurie

Posted by Joe Salamone

Foillard is famous for making some of the greatest examples of Morgon.

Still, his much less available Fleurie stands dangerously close to being the Platonic ideal of Fleurie.

Foillard captures the beauty and delicacy of Fleurie in a way that few others achieve. Fleurie's irresistible lifted, silky profile and elegance is laid bare.

Foillard's Fleurie is sourced from sites of impressive pedigree: the climats of Grille Midi, La Madone, and Champagne. The holdings total a mere 2 hectares making this a much more elusive bottling than his legendary Morgon Côte du Py.

Foillard's 2018s beautifully capture the vintage at its best. They're deep and layered but are also finely etched with a nice underlying brightness. The 2018 Fleurie is finessed with explosive aromatics of violets, strawberry, and plums, mingling with a clear soil expression and minerality.

Last week we offered Foillard's 2018 Côte du Py, and the offer blew up. We have a fraction of the Fleurie compared to the Côte du Py. We don't anticipate this sticking around for very long, especially at this sharp pricing. Please give us your ideal order, and we'll try our best.
